Rich had a small website dedicated to Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, to which a few people contributed a couple wips. Unfortunately, the fandom was too small to hold Rich's interest for very long, and he wanted to shut down the website, but the authors of the fics were nowhere to be found, and he was left as the only caretaker of the few forgotten little stories. He never asked permission to archive the stories elsewhere, but otherwise they'll be lost, so he does it anyway, listing "anonymous" as the archive maintainer and the collection as "closed".
Over time, more and more people find the collection on AOOO, and send emails to anonymous, asking if he knows of any other collection of JS&MN fic, because the fandom is tiny and scattered and it's hard to find anything at all. Rich thinks about it, then changes the archive to "open" and adds links to every other JS&MN fic he can find, and changes privileges so that anyone else can as well. Some authors of the linked stories find out and add their stories to the collection on AO3. Some object and those links are removed and added to a blacklist so they won't be added again. Rich's interest is rekindled! He changes the maintainer to his own username and all is well.
The collection grows slowly, until a major movie studio announces they are making a movie of the book. Activity begins to pick up rapidly. Months later, the movie is released and the fandom explodes. There is drama and wank and all sorts of good things, and Rich is overwhelmed. He splits the collection along the movie release date, and requires any new submissions to check either movie or book 'verse radio buttons. Book 'verse stories go to the old collection, and movie 'verse stories go to the new one. He removes himself entirely from the drastically changed fandom, leaving Deb (book 'verse) and CJ (movie 'verse) to deal with all the crazies.
Mika is suffering some hellish writer's block. To get back into the swing of things, she wants to participate in a challenge. She has a list of fandoms that she will write in, and a list of pairings/ratings she will write for each one. She'd really like a way to search all challenges currently accepting writers for her selected fandoms/pairings/ratings. Ideally, she would get a results page kind of like this:
Fandom - Challenge Name
Format / Requirements
Ratings / Pairings
Dr Who - Bigger on the Inside
Over 5000 words
No rating reqs / The Doctor/Companion
SGA - Summer in the City
5 Things, Summer related
G - PG-13 / No pairing reqs
Fast and Furious - No Challenge Name
No format reqs
No rating reqs / Dom/Brian, Dom/Letty
...an impossible dream? =)
